Pyramids, Sphinks and Headin Home

April 27, 2010 

blog_april_27_2010_1[1] Morning came fast after the late night on the streets of Aswan. I rarely sleep in, but it would have been nice today. Mikey, Warpath and I grabbed a quick breakfast at the Basma Hotel then took off to the Aswan airport and caught an early flight to Cairo. We were met at Cairo airport by a Pyramid Tour guide and driver and off we went.

Although my jaw drops every time I set eyes on the Pyramids, I could have easily kic
ked back at the Basma Hotel all day in Aswan. However, there’s no way Mikey’s film could be complete without footage of the Pyramids. We spent about an hour cruising and viewing the different angles of the Egyptian wonders then took a camel ride to get to the best view point. After that it was the Great Sphinx and then Mikey and Warpath went to the Egyptian museum.

There are two words I try not to use too often, “awesome” and “epic”. However there are times for them. Both words describe the last ten days just perfectly. Once again Egypt did not let me down. The beauty of Lake Nasser, the extreme fishing for magnificent species and spending time with great friends are what has made this such an incredible journey. At midnight I begin the long trek back to Victor, ID where I will unwind for a over a week before packing the bags again. Be ready for some exciting stories and photos from Baja coming very soon.
